/* ---- VIDEO INFORMATION ---- */

So Shutter Island is one of those movies that lived rent-free in my head, even though I'd only watched the film a handful of times. After picking up the 4k blu ray and revisiting it for this breakdown, I found a lot of incredible details and hidden things in it that seeped into my subconscious on a first watch, and this really elevated the movie far beyond the appreciation that I had for it originally. Scorsese has really crafted a masterpiece here, and throughout this video, we're gonna be breaking down why the film is so haunting. We'll of course also be talking about the ending and all of the clues that build towards it.

Now I was someone who guessed the twist in the first scene on my first watch. The idea it was all in someone's mind is a trope that's been used in a number of films and shows like The Twilight Zone, Fight Club, The Machinist and so on. However, even though I think you can safely guess it in the opening scene, the film actually goes beyond the twist due to its complex characters and narrative.

Even the title itself is layered, with Shutter Island being an anagram of truth and lies. If we're really reaching, it can also be re-arranged to say Ted Hunts Liars with Di Caprio's character going under the name Teddy Daniels.

This is later changed up to become Edward Daniels, and we discover that he's actually called Andrew Laeddis which is also an anagram of Edward Daniels. Later on, when we meet Laeddis, we can see that he has a giant scar across his face that also goes through his eyebrow. One thing that you might overlook is that Teddy also has a cut through his eyebrow, and this was given to Dicaprio by the makeup department to symbolise that they are one and the same.

Shutter Island was ruined for me by the trailer for it. The trailer made the "twist" super obvious. So, I watched the film waiting for a second twist, like in Total Recall when Quaid is almost convinced, but notices that they guy telling him that none of it is real is nervous and afraid to the point that he starts sweating. Instead... I just got the obvious twist I was already expecting. Still a great film that was excellently shot and directed, but I never bothered rewatching it.
Doctors don't carry guns, which explains why Teddy's partner Chuck never had one to surrender upon arriving onto the island.

I never thought he regressed back into the fantasy. It's was that line about living as a monster or dying as a good man that shows it. He considers himself a monster for what he did and he doesn't want to live like that. He sees the lobotomy as a death of himself, a way to escape the pain of what he did.

Also, as mentioned, how easily he just walks off with the guards, the whole scene is calm and clean as well as the fact that Dr Cheen calls him Teddy and there is no reaction. That last one is mainly what makes me think he never regressed back.

One small thing is, that teddy never finishes a cigarette, i think there is only one part where he barely finishes one. This could point to him not being a smoker and just being a Symbol to ensure the light metapher. Someone in the comments pointed out, that he gets told to only smoke his own cigarettes, so everytime he gets one and someone has a lighter, his hallucinations start again

There is one little detail i think you missed. In the video, you mention the one music track, playing in correlation to Tedds trauma and that it nods to contradictions within the concentration camp scene. But actually, I think its supposed to reveal that the liberation of Dachau is too a part of the fantasy. That is the snow. In the movie, it was heavily snowing whilst tedd was liberating the camp, but when it was liberated in real life, it was april. It wasnt snowing at all. I think the music track is supposed to be a theme for tedds defense mechanisms around his trauma.

Another little detail you didn’t mention is that in the ending when Andrew gets up to go to his lobotomy, Dr. Sheehan calls him Teddy and he has no reaction, which shows that he has left his fake identity behind.

Always fascinated me that even after those ending hints that he's been "cured" and is aware of the reality but just plays the delusion again nobody in there catches up to it. Sheehan could have easily gotten the clue

This is one of my favorite movies of all time! I have watched it multiple times and see something new with every viewing. Another detail at the very beginning is you can see the shackles hanging in the room on the boat where Teddy (DiCaprio) wakes up. This is an immediate clue that he had been a prisoner and was just waking up on the boat after having been most likely sedated and dressed for the role he was about to play. At some point, his clothes had to have been changed, and the fake gun belt put on him. This is also evident by him being disoriented when he is standing at the sink, and he tells himself to pull it together. I always asked myself HOW could he not have already met Chuck when the boat left the dock? Well, that was the reason...he was sedated. When he finally woke up, the role play began...

@pnut3844able you should check out The Aviator, Wolf of Wall Street, and Silence if you haven't already. Scorcese took like over a decade long break away from making Mob movies after The Departed(though The Aviator came out before). The Aviator sort of has a few of the same vibes as Shutter Island as it deals with mental illness.

I am definitely of the opinion that he chose to go through with the lobotomy, but wanted to also reassure Dr. Sheehan that it had indeed worked. It was like a final goodbye and a thank you all in one. Great breakdown!

The cave scene eerily reminded me of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave ! Especially considering this movie is about accepting that what you thought was reality is actually fake

Great job. My only nitpick which I can’t remember for sure, doesn’t Shaen call him Teddy as he walks away and he doesn’t respond? Slightly signaling he’s done playing the role.

Wow! This is a fantastic breakdown! I think another important element of the weather is the fact that when he is in the past, similar to water, is that the camp is snowing, displaying his PTSD. It shows those memories are frozen and stuck in his mind rather than the fluidity of water which he can change. I think once he starts working things out, that’s when he sees his family frozen, showing the PTSD has them stuck in his mind no matter how many times he tries to change the memory. I think he definitely chooses to have the lobotomy as he realizes the memories are always there no matter how many times they try to use the role play. He recognizes that he doesn’t want to forget again, unless it’s forever.

I love this breakdown. I went back and watched the entire movie again, and I saw all the clues which makes me appreciate this movie even more. At the 17:47 minute mark, you can see Dr Sheehan and an orderly look at each other and smirk while Teddy is interrogating the staff. Amazing! These are the things you wouldn’t notice unless you watched the movie a second time. What a masterpiece!

I think I read somewhere that the creepy woman doing the "shush" motion did it because she didn't have any knowledge of the experiment they were doing with Laeddis and because of her loose grip on reality she thought that he was in disguise and fooling the staff and guards. The shush was her basically saying, "Oh, you're wearing a disguise! Well, mum's the word, I won't tell."

I actually really agree with your intro. I guessed the twist from the trailer and wrote the movie off as cliche without ever having watched it. However, when I did I was floored by everything about it. The twist is only one facet of the film, with all of the character development and movement from scene to scene actually being really, really good.

Wow I loved this breakdown! It’s great to me for many reasons but I’ll share the main reason which is I’m just realizing that I COMPLETELY misunderstood this film 😂 I only watched it once when I was way younger but my takeaway from it was it’s a horror movie, and it being one of those films where they basically convince someone who’s actually sane and probably just visiting or whatever that they’re crazy and are a prisoner (patient) of that facility. Kinda like Gothika with Halle Berry. Though now I feel I need to rewatch that again as well 😂 It’s funny though because that concept has always scared me. Actually being perfectly sane but being gaslit into thinking you’re actually not and that you belong at the asylum with the other patients. Then if you get enraged, they’ll sedate you and now you’re stuck there and actually are a patient. If you act crazy then that confirms that you do belong but then even if you just be normal, they’ll see it as an act and that you still belong there and pretending so they’ll let you leave so either way you’re f****d 😭

I am usually pretty good at guessing the twist in the beginning of mocies and I did here as well. They didn't even leave the boat and I knew. But the movie convinced me that that wouldn't be it. I really really was blown away in the end because the movie made me think I guessed incorrectly. I was convinced the twist was that Leo would be kept on the island because the want him out or something (there are certain hints for that from the beginning, maybe this video shows them as well, I'm typing this at 0:42; especially when Bruce Banner, I know it's disrespectful but I can't remember his name for the sake of it, reveals it in the middle; and then the ending happened and I was mad at the movie for tricking me to believe that "subtwist" so to speak) If you read this far I would like to recommend a book that's called "The Physicists by Friedrich Dürenmatt (read it in german if you can) no further comments given.

This movie has always reminded me of The Shining in a way. It uses the one piece by György Ligeti that was used in The Shining as well, Lontano for large orchestra. Like you were saying, Shutter Island doesn't have a traditional score, but uses many pieces of pre-existing music for its score, which is how Kubrick mostly scored his pictures as well.

A few additional things worth mentioning. When Dr. Cawley is first introduced, pay attention to how he speaks about how the mentally ill used to be treated. Before he says "drowned", he quickly glances at Teddy and slightly changes his tone. While this further underscores Dr. Cawley's distaste for what passed as mental health care in the past, it's also his way of testing Andrew. Dr. Cawley knows that Andrew's children were drowned, and thus even the mention of drowning might be enough to trigger him. When Teddy is interviewing the staff and forces one of them to admit he breached protocol to use the restroom, Chuck can be seen in the background glancing and nodding at one of orderlies, non-verbally assuring him that Teddy is stable. Also, the guard that lets them into Ward C wasn't the one laughing; if you turn on the closed captions, it says that an unseen inmate was laughing. Anyway, great video!

To me, what makes Andrew reverting back into the fantasy impossible at the end is exactly what you stated, Teddy Daniels would not have willingly walked over to the guards and workers and accepted the lobotomy. Everything we saw about Teddy in the movie shows his distrust of the staff and doctors. I have to respect Andrew’s decision, I would not want to remember such a traumatic event either and I wouldn’t have to worry about harming anyone anymore. Great film and great video!

The smirking guard in the concentration camp could be on purpose coz in my mind he didn't care at that point weather he was going to die or not and doing this (smiling at face of death) is a common thing among people that have done horrendous acts during their lives.

Wow I can’t believe I missed all these clues, practically all of it that was covered lol Altho I already suspected that the main character was a patient 1/3 into the movie but to have missed all this and the ending, I was convinced that he regressed back to being crazy.

I remember watching this movie for the first time and at the end still being on the side of Dicaprio's character, thinking they were setting him up. I was so convinced that Teddy was actually a cop, I just glossed over the big reveal.

I've always loved this movie. I've seen it probably a dozen times and STILL don't understand it, even after watching several "explained" TRvid videos. It's THAT bizarre

@Joseph Szekszardi Absolutely the best explanation of the movie that I've ever read/heard. Thank you! I wasn't sure about the whole delusional identity swap and how he made himself only see what he wanted to see and how the hospital had set up this elaborate play to get him back to reality.

What do you mean? It's not that hard to understand, So Andre Laeddis aka Teddy was one a highly intelligent successful US Marshall who was a former war veteran who had PTSD and buried himself in his work. Which in turn caused him to Ignore his wife severe mental health problems, which culminated in her murdering their 3 children and her asking him to set her free, which in the moment broken and in an impossible situation with what just happened, complied and shot his wife dead. Shortly thereafter he was arrested and committed to a mental asylum, Andrew blamed himself and felt as if he killed his own kids by ignoring his wife. He couldn't accept reality hating himself to the point that he created a sophisticated delusion, Teddy whos still a US marshall whos wife died in a fire, separating and ignoring anything that could remind him of who he was, even nearly killing the other patients at the mere mention of his real name. Because he was a highly trained deadly man being a former war vet and Marshall they deemed him too dangerous and pushed for a lobotomy because he was harming the other patients orderlies etc. However his doctors empathised with his tragic situation and felt he deserved a chance to redeem, so they concocted a massive joint effort role play that would lead into him being able to accept reality and be snapped out of his delusion. However in the end though through there massive effort (this was the second attempt) was successful and he remembered and accepted his reality, he tragically also could not live anymore with the guilt of the truth and decided to pretend he regressed back into the delusion when the final decision was being made on his fate so he could purposely get lobotomised which is basically like death, This evident in his haunting final words "would you rather live as a monster or die a good man" ( would you rather accept reality and live as the man who killed his wife and inadvertently let his wife murder his 3 children aka real him Andrew Laeddis or die convincing yourself your a good man who's still out there trying to save the world from people like that aka Teddy Daniels before the lights turn off aka lobotomy aka basically being dead while alive). All the wacky trippy stuff is showing us how things appear in Andrews mind while living under the delusion he was Teddy during this whole role play attempt. It has it complexities and exposition but I think it shows that they did really well with portraying Andres delusion if people are still having trouble understanding what was going on with the movie. Does that all make sense now ?

Very good breakdown. Question: would you consider doing a breakdown of the Netflix miniseries Maniac with Jonah Hill and Emma Stone? It kinda lends itself to meticulous breakdowns but somehow snuck under the radar when it came out.

@mediumvillain I did the same as well. The only thing I can remember about it is that one of the characters(Hill maybe)had psychological issues. Other than that I draw a blank and I don't know why. I feel like I enjoyed it but the details escape me.

I'm convinced that he knew in the end. Had that feeling/thought/option from the first time to the 30 time I have seen it. It's a great movie.
Even at the end when marked called him teddy he didn’t respond or look back. This was a brilliant movie in the fact that you can spot new things each time you watch it. Look at the background characters and dialogue when theirs groups.

I got stuck in the airport and watched twice back to back as it was all I had to keep busy. Great film through and through. Watching it back to back really highlights what is happening... If you have time to kill.

Good review. After the second viewing, I determined Teddy's statement at the end, he wanted the lobotomy to forget what actually happened.

Nice breakdown. One thing I don't understand is why Andrew Laeddis is considered such a dangerous patient (or the most dangerous patient, for the matter of fact). I guess it's not because of the crime itself, because there seem to be others who have committed similar crimes appear in the movie. So what made him so dangerous from them all? Was it the way he didn't accept what actually happened?

Glad to see and hear what you said, cause it all make sense, tho when I watched the movie in class, some people said that he was not a patient and other didn't believe that many things he saw were illusion except her wife, anyways The end is so heart breaking/really sad

Wow... I had always simply thought that he had regressed at the end. The idea that he kept his "sanity" and willfully chose to get lobotomized instead of living with it is too good. I recognize that the movie is ambiguous, but I choose to believe your analysis. It makes for a better story.

I read the book before watching the movie. In the book the treatment doesn’t work but I love how in the movie it makes you think that it did but Teddy doesn’t want to live with it.

Something you may have missed- In the opening shots you see “Ted” walking out of the boat bathroom and see that the room is full of shackles and the camera specifically pans past a pair of handcuffs hanging from the ceiling. Almost like they had “Teddy” shackled and in handcuffs just minutes before the movie begins.
